Vessel Strikes Maryland Bridge, Causing Dangerous Collapse and Closing Traffic on I-270

Maryland Bridge Collapse Caught on Livestream as Ship Collides with Structure

On Tuesday morning, a large ship crashed into a bridge in Maryland, causing it to collapse. According to ship tracking data, the vessel is Singapore-flagged and measures 984 feet long. The moment of impact was captured on a YouTube livestream at 1:28 a.m., when the ship struck what appeared to be a bridge support beam.

The Dali, the name of the vessel, approached the Francis Scott Key Bridge support beam at around 1:24 a.m. local time. The livestream showed the lights of the ship flicker off for several minutes before turning back on as it neared the bridge. At approximately 1:28 a.m., the ship collided with the beam, causing the bridge to collapse in less than ten seconds.

Grace Ocean, a Singapore-based company that owns the Dali, and Synergy Marine Group, also based in Singapore, were unable to provide comment despite attempts to contact them for commentary on this incident. The Maryland Transportation Authority has confirmed that the collapse was caused by a strike from this ship and has closed down traffic across all lanes of I-270 due to debris from the wreckage which is being cleared away slowly but steadily without any harm caused to anyone else except for those who were working on site when it happened .
